Thanks JGTP,
I would have missed this one. This apparent attention to civicism is encouraging. Let's hope it is not a false flag.

I had to look that one up. I still don't get it but it sounds funny. I suppose the joke is on me.

I have a feeling this article is somehow relevant. Or maybe not? But something is going, that's for sure.
I invite your thoughts.

OK let me see if I understand your assertion. Are you implying that those who love life, find wonder in those who live amongst us, and fight for the greater good of all belong on the far side de la luna? Perhaps your right, although I think we will be having this La Mancha struggle much closer to home.

Hey, remember in Independence Day when the aliens snuck up on Earth by hiding behind the moon? I wonder why they thought that was so important given that they were so technologically superior anyway? Regardless, a space station on the far side of the moon is not only a great idea for national security, it will lead to some killer documentaries scored by Pink Floyd.

Kudos for a nice article, but the irony is that she was likely at an event set up by liberals, where you do see this kind of diversity. Republican events tend to consist of mostly rural, white folks.

Excellent observation, Meade. That explains why the GOP is so focused on an anti-immigration, anti-gay, anti-student, anti-minority voting rights, anti-affirmative action, anti-women agenda. I also now understand why Kenya annexed Hawaii and converted all of it's inhabitants to Islam.

No pooper-scooper required when Republicans openly cater to these people, advocate their agenda, and even propose the legislation they favor...
